I am always on the hunt for new made in the USA outdoor play items to add to our collection. Here is a list of our favorite outdoor toys and game brands and products that we have either enjoyed when the kids were younger, currently love, or want.
We hold onto the American made backyard or outdoor toys and games that we really love for years and years. This is a category that is truly worth the investment. My kiddos have wasted no time at all in transitioning from their favorite indoor playroom activities to their favorite outdoor toys and games. The warm weather has been a greatly appreciated here in the northeast after a long, cold, and VERY snowy winter. Let's get outside and play!
American Made Outdoor Toys and Games
Manufactured in Mississippi and Michigan, American Plastic Toys Inc offers a wide selection of backyard toys for toddlers and preschoolers. American Plastic Toys Inc. recently sent me some items to try out and the Sand and Water Play Set is a HUGE hit with my 3 and 4 year old friends. Also a favorite is the Cute Lawn Mower, and the Mega Construction Set. American Plastic Toys Inc's Sand Toys are always a hit in the sandbox!
Step 2 manufactures many popular outdoor toys for toddlers and preschoolers like play houses, climbers, slides, sandboxes, water tables, wagons…. and more! My kiddos both loved the climber with the slide. Even after years of use it was still in perfect shape to be passed on to little cousins.
I have yet to see a kid that doesn't LOVE the Little Tikes Crazy Coupe! It was always the most popular backyard toy at playdates when my kiddos were toddlers. Little Tikes also manufactures in the USA slides, water tables, swings, picnic tables, and more.
Swing sets are a great investment and provide outdoor enjoyment for years. Who doesn't remember spending hours swinging and climbing on a backyard playset?! Flexible Flyer is an American manufacturer of metal plays sets, like the ones found in every backyard pre 1990. In the 90's, wooden play sets became popular and there are many companies that manufacture them in the USA, like PlayStar, and Gorilla Playsets. Most play sets are suitable for ages 2-10. I was sent a Murbles game set to try out 2 summers ago and it quickly became our favorite summer outdoor game. Murbles is fun for all ages and easy to play. I keep Murbles in my Jeep all summer because we play it at the beach, park, and pretty much anywhere we feel like playing! Murbles has been featured several times here at USA Love List.
Aerobie Toys manufactures outdoor throw discs, rings, and boomerangs. I always keep an Aerobie throw ring in my beach bag as they always keep the older kids busy.Disclosure: USA Love List received products in this post unconditionally for review purposes.
